Volunteer Services Program

The mission of the Volunteer Services Program is to promote access to quality health care for the medically underserved and uninsured residents of Florida through the commitment of volunteers. The Volunteer Health Services Program accomplishes its role through two volunteer programs authorized by Chapters 110 and 766, Florida Statutes.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The Chapter 110 volunteer program is an internal state agency program, which provides opportunities for anyone who wants to donate goods and/or their services to those in need under the supervision of the Department of Health. A variety of volunteer opportunities are available in many DOH facilities to individuals with clerical, administrative, technical and professional skills. You must be 18 years prior to the start of volunteer duties.

Volunteer Health Care Provider Program

The Volunteer Health Care Provider Program, s. 766.1115, F.S., allows private licensed health care providers to volunteer their services to the medically indigent residents of Florida with incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level and be under the state's sovereign immunity.  Through a contract, a provider can be designated an "agent of the state" and have sovereign immunity for uncompensated services rendered to clients determined eligible and referred by DOH.

Training is available and valuable experience can be gained by becoming a volunteer. To find out more about becoming a volunteer please call our Regional Volunteer Coordinator at 786-336-1280
